Auto-update putty session list in mRemote

> Steps to repro:
>
> 1) Create a connection with Protocol set to SSH2.
> 2) Browse Putty session list. (Ooops. I want to use a session in the list)
> 3) Create the session under Putty
> 4) Go back to mRemote and browse Putty session list.
>
> Session list still does not have the newly created session.

The author suggested:

start putty by going to Tools - Options - Advanced - Launch PuTTY
solves the problem.

Globe's HOOQ.TV an (unethical) scam!!

After being terribly disappointed with the subscription stage and after also after a very disappointing test drive (at least Netflix tries to be do-no-evil), I am now very disappointed with the un-subscription of HOOQ.tv with Globe.


Globe sends me a message:


Hi! We'd like to remind you that your free HOOQ will end in 7 days on 10/27/2015. Upon expiry, your subscription will auto-renew to the paid version for P149 per month. If you don't want the paid version, text HOOQ STOP to 8888. before the expiry date. Thank you!


I send the HOOQ STOP to 888 and received:

I called Globe Support (211).


Here's the scam:


- GoSurf 999 comes with the HOOQ Free Plan


- After the Free HOOQ Plan (which you did not use because it sucks) expires, it will auto-renew without your consent (!!! UNETHICAL !!!…

sudo apt-get install openvpn network-manager-openvpn Not sure if you need network-manager-openvpn.

sudo wget https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/openvpn/openvpn.zip Extract. Move ca.crt and crl.pem to /etc/openvpn

Move "Hong Kong.ovpn" to "/etc/openvpn/Hong Kong.config" for example.

Modified the following lines.

auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn/login.conf route-up /etc/openvpn/route-up.sh
These are the contents of these files.

# cat /etc/openvpn/login.conf username password
Replace with your username and password.

# cat route-up.sh  #!/bin/bash
ip route flush table 100 ip route flush cache ip rule add from x.x.x.x table 100 ip route add table 100 to y.y.y.y/y dev ethX ip route add table 100 default via z.z.z.z
Replace x.x.x.x with your public IP address, y.y.y.y/y with your subnet. Compute using http://jodies.de/ipcalc. Hint: Input public IP and netmask, y…
